Also my computer case is not big enough for all this big hardware and there is a lot of heat I need to find a new case now that will help me with cooling down my hardware... any suggestions?
While you're at it you may want to invest in a water cooling system or a good fan.

Yes I was thinking that way but my case is not big enough for water cooling system...
My computer case is now SILVERSTONE PS01-E, I've got 4 fans but It's not enough it seems.

Thank you for posting your solution, that may well help someone else. I am glad to hear you found the problem and solved it.

Failing power supplies can cause a variety of problems and they are usually masked as hardware problems. The video card and drivers are frequently affected and blamed in dumps. There is no real way to test a power supply at home except by trying another power supply.

I suggest you post your question about cases and cooling in the Performance & Maintenance section.

You could always remove the side panel of your PC to alway air to circulate more freely if your PC is in a safe enough position to do that (IE not where it can be jabbed at by pets, children, feet, hands etc. as to avoid electrocution, damage to the PC, use common sense).

Hello I hope it will solve your problem, my problem was my case...
It wasn't big enough and most of the air from the fans just stayed there and that made my computer extremely hot, also the cables were crowded and that did not help to solve my problem.

Good luck mate.
